Wichita, KS Agrees to $5M Settlement Over Fatal Shooting

More than five years after a police officer shot and killed Andrew Finch, the City of Wichita has agreed to a $5 million settlement in the case.

On Tuesday, the Wichita City Council voted 6-1 to approve $5 million as a “full and complete settlement of all possible claims arising” out of his death.

On Dec. 28, 2017, the Wichita Police Department (WPD) was sent to the Finch home because someone had reported a murder and hostage situation at the house. At the time, the officers did not know it was a hoax call, often called “swatting.”
